The UPC Mediation Rules have been published by the Preparatory Committee:

The UPC Preparatory Committee published the Mediation Rules of the UPC on 15th February, after it agreed on this first draft at its last meeting in December 2015. The Preparatory Committee however warns that these rules will need “legal scrubbing and further work (…) to align them with other rules”.

The Mediation Rules will be applied at the Patent Mediation and Arbitration Centre, which will provide facilities and support for the settlement of disputes relating to Unitary patents and European patents for which the Unified Patent Court is exclusively competent.
